Is there no official TdF iPhone app for the US? There is an app, but it seems like it's only available in the UK. If not, what are folks using to follow the tour on their phone?

Using Tour Tracker from cyclingnews.com seems good enough for quick looks at rider profiles etc whilst watching on TV, not used it when I can't see it on TV though so don't know what it's like for live updates.

Big fan of Tour Tracker too. Good also for the other Grand Tours.

Awesome, thanks. I'll check that one out. Wonder why the official app isn't available in the US.

Is there a significant difference between the apps? I've only seen the cyclingnews app (located in USA).

They are actually quite similar in features, but my preferred app is the Tour Tracker. Quicker on the live feed and social side.

Not sure if you guys stateside can access this page? I'll give it a go.
